Economic Input-Output Life Cycle Sustainability Assessment of Electricity Generation in Turkey between 1995 and 2009

Abuzer Pınar [1] , Levent Aydın [2]


The purpose of this paper is to present the sustainability assessment of the electricity sector by using economic input-output life cycle (EIO-LCA) in Turkey, taking into account the environmental, economic and social aspects for the period between 1995 and 2009. In order to evaluate the sustainability of electricity sector, we use some major economic, environmental, and social indicators as sustainability life cycle indicators. The policy scenario is a $1 million increase in output of electricity sector. Results indicates that decrease in emissions of carbon dioxide and air pollutants by almost half according to policy scenario. The main reason for this decline is the use of imported natural gas in the production of electric energy instead of lignite produced by Turkey in this period.
